EU Fact Sheet: Air and noise pollution

Air pollution harms our health and our environment. It mainly stems from industry, transport, energy production and agriculture. The EU air quality strategy pursues full compliance with existing air quality legislation by 2020 and sets long-term objectives for 2030. The Environmental Noise Directive helps to identify noise levels within the EU and to take the necessary measures to bring them down to acceptable levels. Separate legislation regulates noise emission from specific sources.
